Hinduphobia: Draft for a petition to the United Nations – Maria Wirth


Maria WirthIntroduction

Something incredible happens since quite some time: Tigers claim with a lot of media and “academic” support that deer are eating up tigers. And the deer only say, “No, it’s not true” but do not give proof that they are vegetarians while tigers killed and ate already millions of deer.

The attacks on Hindus are unrelenting. Now even a British MP tweeted about a “Hindu terrorist” when there cannot be terrorism in the name of Hindu Dharma, because it is never dharmic to kill or injure at random innocent people.

The narrative goes like this: only certain deer are dangerous (Hindutva), others are not (Hinduism). Those deer who accept and respect that tigers will eat them are okay, but those deer who raise alarm and object to being eaten up, are dangerous terrorists.

Is it not time for Hindus to put facts on the table in international forums regarding the doctrine of religions?

Show to the world the teeth of a tiger and the teeth of a deer. In other words, point to the objectionable, divisive aspect of the predator religions, and then show them Hindu Dharma which is based on the most profound, benign and all-inclusive philosophy.

The claim “the Almighty has sanctioned only our religion as true and those who don’t accept this, are sinful creatures who will be thrown into hell” is the root cause for the hate crimes against Hindus not only in Pakistan and Bangladesh but also in Bharat and even in US.

Muslims and Christians keep frequently petitioning the United Nations and are heard.

Yet inexplicably, Hindus, who are the majority in Bharat, have so far not internationally exposed the intrinsic hatred for them contained in the official doctrines of those two religions and suffer silently the great injustice, daily humiliation and violence meted out to them.

To condemn killings and rapes which happen so frequently, is not enough.

The root cause needs to be eradicated.

I drafted this petition which is open to being improved.

Would any Hindu representative or group take it forward?

Draft for a Petition to the United Nations
(or International Court of Justice)

This is an appeal to the United Nations to declare the abuse of Hindus by Christianity and Islam as “idol-worshippers”, heathens” and “kafirs”, who are damned for all eternity to hell, as an unacceptable violation of human dignity and equality.

Each of the two religions claims that the “true” Creator of the universe, whom Christians call God, and Muslims call Allah, wants all to follow only what he revealed through Jesus Christ, respectively to Prophet Mohammed, and that he will discard all those, who do not heed his command and who worship “false Gods”, into hell.

This is the root cause why in the name of Christianity and Islam, millions were killed, forcefully converted and temples destroyed.

All over the world ancient cultures were destroyed and replaced by these two religions and humanity suffered greatly over the last 1700 years. While the holocaust of the natives in [North and] South America and the holocaust of the Jews are well known, the holocaust of Hindus by Muslims is little known. Estimates speak of 80 million Hindus mercilessly killed because they were Hindus, [and an unknown number by the Goa Inquisition].

India is the last vibrant ancient culture, which is still alive, though greatly diminished. It has contributed maximum to human civilisation in all fields, which is well documented, yet mostly hidden from the public.

The insight that One Consciousness (Brahman) is pervading everything in this universe was also discovered in India. Without any understanding of Indian philosophy, Christian and Muslim clergy falsely demean Hindu Gods as demons and Hindus as idol worshippers, what they declare as a grave sin.

Christianity and Islam consider it their “divine duty” to make Hindu culture also extinct, and both work towards it using threat, deceit, allurement and violence. For example, in 1990, Hindus in the Kashmir valley were threatened by Muslims to convert, leave or get killed. Many were killed and 400.000 fled.

Christianity may not kill any longer, but it does its best to uproot cultural identities and to divide society.  The Joshua Project for example is a systematic and aggressive agenda to map Hindus all over India and convert them in big numbers.

The unrelenting vilification of Hindutva (Hindu-ness) as promoting terror against Muslims and Christians, supported by the Leftist media, puts Hindus in great danger. Hate speech precedes hate crimes and can lead to genocide. It needs to be stopped urgently.

Every human being is free to worship the Supreme in whatever way he wants and by whatever name he wants to call it. This is guaranteed in the right to religious freedom. But there is a condition: the religious belief must be worthy of respect in a democratic society and must not infringe on the rights and freedoms of other people.

The irresponsible, baseless claim that God/ Allah hates the “idol-worshipping Hindus”, is definitely not worthy of respect, endangers public safety and breeds hatred for Hindus.

We request all right thinking people to support this appeal to outlaw this hate promoting aspect of the doctrines of Christianity and Islam.

Especially the indoctrination of Christian and Muslim children to look down and even hate Hindus for allegedly “worshipping false gods”, must stop in the interest of humanity. – Maria Wirth Blog, 21 December 2021

  1. UN Secretary-General António Guterres speaks out against Islamophobia.

    UN leaders speak out against Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hatred – UN Headquarters – New York City – 17 March 2021

    Underlining that “diversity is a richness, not a threat”, UN Secretary-General António Guterres called for greater investment in promoting social cohesion and tackling bigotry in a message on Wednesday to mark the International Day to Combat Islamophobia.

    “We must continue to push for policies that fully respect human rights and religious, cultural and unique human identity”, he said in a pre-recorded video broadcast during a commemorative event held online, organized by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

    “As the Holy Quran reminds us: nations and tribes were created to know one another.”

    ‘Epidemic’ of hatred

    Nearly 60 countries are members of the OIC, which designated 15 March as the International Day to Combat Islamophobia.

    The Secretary-General cited a recent report to the UN Human Rights Council which found that suspicion, discrimination and outright hatred towards Muslims has risen to “epidemic proportions”.

    Examples listed included disproportionate restrictions against Muslims manifesting their beliefs, limits on accessing citizenship, and widespread stigmatization of Muslim communities.

    The study also highlighted how Muslim women face “triple levels of discrimination” because of their gender, ethnicity and faith, he added, while the media and some persons in power have further compounded stereotypes.

    ‘Distressing trends’ globally

    “Anti-Muslim bigotry is sadly in line with other distressing trends we are seeing globally – a resurgence in ethno-nationalism, neo-Nazism, stigma and hate speech targeting vulnerable populations including Muslims, Jews, some minority Christian communities as well as others”, the Secretary-General said.

    Stressing that “discrimination diminishes us all”, the UN chief called for safeguarding the rights of minority communities, many of whom are under threat.

    “As we move toward evermore multi-ethnic and multi-religious societies, we need political, cultural and economic investments to strengthen social cohesion and tackle bigotry,” he stated.

    The Secretary-General underscored that fighting discrimination, racism and xenophobia is a priority for the United Nations.

    Promoting respect among religions

    Following a fall-out in relations between many Muslim countries and some Western nations in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States – and subsequent attacks in London, Madrid and Bali – the Organization established the UN Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) in 2005.

    Miguel Ángel Moratinos, the current UNAOC High Representative, recalled the initiative was launched as a “political soft power tool” whose objectives include promoting mutual respect among diverse cultures and religions.

    “Despite progress made in building bridges of understanding through the promotion of intercultural and interfaith dialogue, manifestations of anti-Muslim hatred persisted and morphed into different forms”, he said.

    “Islamophobia cannot be seen in isolation from the worrying increase in xenophobia and hate speech against minorities including immigrants and other faith communities.”

    Mr. Moratinos said mutual respect, interfaith harmony and peaceful co-existence can be achieved “when there is broad space for everyone to practice the rituals of their religions or beliefs freely and safely.”

    Solidarity, equality, respect

    For the President of the UN General Assembly, Turkish diplomat Volkan Bozkir, any form of discrimination, including based on religion or belief, “is a deeply personal attack”.

    He urged countries to re-commit to the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other related instruments, expressing hope that they will lay the foundation for national laws to end hate speech and hate crimes.

    “Today our conversation is focused on Islamophobia, but the source of this scourge is a source that imperils us all.  The answer is solidarity, equality, and respect for the equal dignity and entitlement to fundamental human rights of every individual”, he said.

    Mr. Bozkir added that protecting people from extremism requires a global strategy that includes defeating all forms of violent ideologies.

    He called for building resilience to discriminatory, exclusionary, and intolerant teachings, and developing respect for the religious and cultural practices of others.

    Urging tolerance, he looked to young people as a source of hope.

    “Young people are the leaders and upstanders of tomorrow – and it is our duty to teach them that every individual is entitled to equal dignity and inalienable human rights” he recommended.

    “Beyond formal education, we must instil within them a moral compass to help them navigate difficult situations. I applaud the work of the UN Alliance of Civilizations for their programming which promotes interfaith and intercultural dialogue for young people. I believe this is critical to the progress of humanity.”

    Comparing Hindu religion with ISIS: Court orders FIR against Salman Khurshid for comments in his book – Times Now Digital – Lucknow – Dec. 23, 2021

    A court in Uttar Pradesh has ordered police to register an FIR against senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid for comparing the “Sanatan” Hindu religion with the Boko Haram and ISIS terror outfits in his book titled “Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in our times”.

    Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Shantanu Tyagi asked the Bakshi Ka Talab police in-charge to submit the copy of an FIR before the court in three days.

    “From a perusal of the application and the arguments raised in its support, I am of the opinion that cognisable offences are made out against Salman Khurshid,” the magistrate said in its order.

    Petitioner Shubhangi Tiwari had moved the court seeking action against Khurshid claiming that certain portions of his book amounted to hurting the religious feelings of Hindus.

    The court was also informed that an application seeking an FIR against Khurshid was moved at the police station, but the police did not do so and hence, the petitioner had to approach the court.

    The Congress leader’s book which was released in November created a huge controversy over the comment made in the chapter titled ‘The Saffron Sky’. On page number 113 of the book.

    “Sanatan Dharma and classical Hinduism known to sages and saints were being pushed aside by a robust version of Hindutva, by all standards a political version similar to the jihadist Islam of groups like ISIS and Boko Haram of recent years,” the contents of the book read.

    Several BJP leaders had heavily criticised Khurshid for his comments in his book.

    The Congress leader’s book reportedly explored the Supreme Court’s historic judgement on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case.

    Notably, senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad had also said that equating Hindutva to ISIS and Boko Haram is factually wrong and exaggeration.
